I Want to Marry You Cookies

Let me just say this:  These cookies might not make you want to marry whoever made them for you, but they might make you want to marry the actual cookie!!!  Oh, wow, these were absolutely fantastic cookies... I usually have my one, maybe two (if I really stretch it) favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes and I don't venture far from them - but these... yea, these will definitely end up as my number two chocolate chip cookie recipe.  And trust me, that is saying a lot!

I Want to Marry You Cookies
Slightly adapted from Mary at Barefeet in the Kitchen
Printable Recipe 
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups brown sugar (I used light)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips

In a bowl of a standing mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together with the paddle attachment on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes.  Scrape sides down with a rubber spatula.  With the mixer running on low, add the egg and mix until just incorporated.  Add the egg yolk and mix until just incorporated (don't forget to scrape down the sides!!).  Add the vanilla and vanilla bean and mix just until combined.

In another bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients and add it to the wet ingredients, mixing until combined.  Fold in the chocolate and white chocolate chips.  Roll, by hand, into 24 medium size balls or 50-60 smaller ones.  Chill for an hour.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.  Remove cookies from the refrigerator and place on baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.  Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on how big you make them, or until cookies are just set and slightly brown on the edges.  Remove from the baking sheet and cool on a wire rack.  Enjoy!

You can't marry a cookie in East Tennessee. You can marry your first cousin (seriously, our former neighbor was married to her first cousin) but cookies, I'm pretty sure that's illegal.

I might not marry them, but I would squeal in delight while eating them. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog till Monday night and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your cookies up.

Jenn said...
